Spearmint - "Sweeping the Nation" (Hitback records).
Email to 11.30 21/12/13.

I've just finished the first draft of my book about the five years I spent promoting various genres of local music during 2002/2007 in and around Chorley, Blackburn and Preston, Lancashire.

It champions all the bands and artists that never got to make it further than their hometown fan base...and a few that did.

I found your track "Sweeping the Nation" on a Rough Trade CD and have been recommending it to anyone I meet/know as the best song I have ever heard that sums up what my book is about...

I am 51 and Northern Soul was an influence on my growing up and appreciation of musical styles. How clever of you to combine the classic back beat sample with a list of the bands you knew about that never made it and then bound it all together with driving guitars and the thumping chorus of:

"I've been wasting my life I've finally realised I've wasted so much time....!

My book has made me understand that I didn't waste my life because I followed my dream, stuck to what I believed in and have some wonderful memories. I know what Mr Bradshaw meant in his words to Shirley as everything I wanted in life has come true!

Thanks again and maybe I'll get to one of your gigs in the New Year.

"I wanna hear you on that!"

John Winstanley.
